Renato Foti

Like many of the artists who most intrigue me, glassmaker Renato Foti began his career exploring a completely different medium. The artist started as a painter, and though he moved pretty quickly into glass, his knack for combining glass colors and shapes feels very painterly to me. Though its difficult to tell in the photos, his pieces are actually quite big, with many of his larger pieces topping off at 2′ by 5′.

I find all his happy, enthusiastic colors really cheering, and I’d be thrilled to hang one of his pieces in my house. Or maybe I should save my walls and my wallet, and just spring for one of his smaller pieces…

You can enjoy all of Foti’s gorgeous glass work on his website.

P.S. My test came out fine, and they’re recommending medication instead of surgery right now! Thanks for all the good thoughts. XO

  1. I’m glad you got the all clear from your tests.

    I love the vibrancy of the glass and especially the undulating wall pieces. I’ve been meaning to ask you if you’ve ever been to the Chrysler Museum in VA? I went over spring break and was incredibly impressed by their glass collection. I could have spent even longer than I did in the glass galleries. I saw a cool glass working demonstration too. Anyway, I immediately thought of you as a fellow art glass enthusiast. And then forgot to ask you until now.

    this is a somewhat different take on glass art. I love all the color. Kinda like opening a new box of crayons.
